I don't think her biological mother will be explored in X-Factor. Or if it is, it won't be touched on very much. I'd like it to be, but it doesn't seem very likely with Havok as the leader and Polaris chosen as one of the last people to reveal for the team.
Lorna comparing her relationship to her father with Stockholm syndrome depends on when it was said, the circumstances, and the writer that wrote the line for her. I don't know any of that because I don't recall the line. If it was quite a while back, well, I'd note the Rogue and Magneto relationship here and how Rogue's feelings for him changed over time.
As long as I'm posting this, I read this news article and thought of it as something perhaps Lorna could do as a difference between her and Magneto power-wise.
Also, Blanchett neglects the fact Magneto is leading nothing right now. So, this isn't a question of if Lorna agrees with Alex or Magneto. It should be a question of if she agrees with Scott or Wolverine more as they are the leaders. It shouldn't be a question of emotional attachment to her boyfriend or her father.
And, it remains to be seen if Magneto is against the new X-Factor as if it crosses over with Children's Crusade like PAD said it would it will likely be about finding and repowering mutants. I don't think Magneto has a problem with X-Force either even though they are Wolverine's team.

You're right, and that's one of the things I feel bad about, that I haven't read whole, complete runs of the character yet aside from things since 2009. Just disjointed issues from various points in her history. I keep forgetting that signing up to Marvel.com is an option for reading all the back issues instead of hoping I get lucky with big compilation books (I bought a black and white one of X-men 1 to 50 just because Lorna was at the end of it) and the occasional physical copy issue or two.
Plus a few I was able to buy individually for my PSP.
My post was more about my newness in actual, real world years, though. I need to read all the full runs in chronological order so I can get a much better sense of her progression by decade and by arcs, but I'm still brand new to reading Marvel comics, and there are undoubtedly some things about how Marvel's fictional universe operates that will take time to really sink in for me. I've learned this from how many new people to video games series I've loved since I was a child don't really see all the things that are important about the series, can't even begin to imagine the circumstances behind why a game turned out a certain way when it was first made, etc. There are some things that you can't learn simply by reading a lot of text, you'll only understand them through experience over time, and I still need more of that.
Also... I keep bypassing this bit, but jmc, you've been mentioning that Children's Crusade is going to cross over with X-Factor a lot. If Lorna is on X-Factor, and she's there during Children's Crusade and Wanda interacts with Lorna, then it would be a huge HUGE shift in development. I remember a year ago, we were all talking about how Children's Crusade was ignoring Lorna as a family member, and Brevoort's quotes that more or less said we'd never, ever see Lorna and Wanda interact while he was running things on the Avengers side. Especially not within Children's Crusade. If that stance has changed, and Lorna will actually get that chance to interact with Wanda, then it's a wonderful sign of progress from Marvel in making use of Lorna's potential. That alone would be a big reason for me to have to apologize about too hastily judging her being put on X-Factor. And I will happily do so if it comes to pass. :)
The X-Men #255 prview should be up today! I hope the stuff we saw as being labeled from #256 is actually in #255 so the pacing is a bit faster and Lorna stops being mind-controlled so she has real precious panel time with Magneto.
"We can fight all day, Sunfire. But I still won't belong to anyone- but myself. And it's been a while since I've been able to say that."- Polaris, X-Men #187.
Simply amazing. I also love the Daisy duke shorts!!
Edit: Since I've been having bad luck with things I say getting misinterpreted lately, want to add that that last line was a joke.

I wonder if any of the current writers wanted to write Polaris without her other half. Or if that ever happens where a writer says something like "I want Polaris on my team. Just Polaris."
